MAINZ Auckland stays at 150 Victoria Street West for 1 Semester

Dear Students,

We are pleased to inform you that for all new and returning students we will be welcoming you back to the MAINZ Auckland campus at 150 Victoria Street for the first semester.

Firstly, we deeply and sincerely apologise for not being able to inform you of our start of year dates and location up until now. The building plans at Mangere were delayed and this made our stay at Victoria Street West complex to negotiate.

The Bachelor of Audio Engineering and Production will unfortunately not be offered at MAINZ Auckland in 2020.   MAINZ Christchurch programmes are not affected and Audio Production courses will still be offered at SIT Sound.

All students:
We are really excited to be welcoming you onto the MAINZ Auckland campus at our Orientation Day of Monday 17th February at 10:am.

Your parents, friends, whanau are invited to come and support you on this first day of your study programme and attend a bbq after the powhiri.

We will send more details to all students about your Orientation week.

Returning students:

There will be some questions and concerns you have now as we are remaining at the Auckland campus until the end of Semester One (26 June 2020).  Semester Two will commence at the Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, Mangere Campus, 15 Canning Crescent on Monday the 20th of July 2020.

Therefore, we invite you to a special meeting with Hamish Small, Head of Faculty, on Monday the 17th February at 1pm.

You will be receiving information about your timetables shortly.
